would it not be easier to just drill new mounting holes, and ventilation holes. you could even just cut it out and screw a coverplate over. that way you could sell your arc midi on for a decent price smile.gif

Yeah suppose I could BUT that would be too easy smile.gif

I'll have a hard think about what I'll be doing when I have built my friends rig and decided if I like the R4 more than the Midi.

Here's a pic to visualise what I want to potentially do.

itll be quite thin between the motherboard and rear chassis for a pass-through. even a bulkhead
fitting would be a tight fit in that location. the motherboard tray has a flange that rivets to the rear
chassis; which will leave a .550" or .730" modifying the motherboard tray. it is doable, you'll have
to disass the rear chassis panel to modify, but the motherboard tray will be the deal-breaker if
tubing exits behind.. best option would be the 8th PCI slot, OE cooling holes, or next to the PSU
in that area.

VD88,
if hes not gunna make it hardcore, use the R4 (less PITA). if he has any tendency to make
a beastly cooler, use the midi. the R4 door is nioce.. but from a strict performance level,
he'll for sake the door for high speed, high static LOUD fans, kinda defeats the reason for
the door. take the door off and ya gotta midi.. a doorless R4 is not a pretty sight look at 24/7,
but a midi can look really noice...

mmm yeah looks like it would be a tight fit. Reason being, I wanted to route the tubes in line with the sleeving. If It's too tight i was thinking just routing it to the back of the motherboard tray where the grommets are and run it down into the bottom half of the case, keeping it nice and clean and having it come out through the pci - slots which would be covered up with the acrylic. FYI, I would be using 7/16 tubing, but if I can get away with that, I might use thinner tubing just for that part so I can route it out the back.

(Planning on shifting into a R4 in a few months after I work out how to fit my 240, pump and res without removing any of the HDD cages. and whether I need an extra 120)

Thanks guys! biggrin.gif

If I were to mount a 280mm radiator in the top of the R4, would the screw holes lineup properly? I'm not willing to sacrifice my hard drive trays so I'm not going for the front, nor do I want to do a 240mm. I understand clearance will be an issue, but does anyone know the exact clearance as well? I think I may have a way around it, but I'm not sure yet.

ive got a midi drilled and de-rivetted and there is literally no room in that area without
major modifications. 7/16" hose is 5/8" (.625") OD. so you are .125" too big, add another
.09" for a clamp or hose bulge (7/16" hose on 1/2" barb). there isnt seriously any where
to put the connections behind the motherboard because of the PSU and motherboard
themselves.

depending on whos radiator (different fan spacing holes) will be the answer. not all of
them use a 15mm fan spacing. the next would be the distance from the roof to the first
hortizontal line of motherboard mounts. because the fan grill isnt offset, you now have
a different issue that the rad and single fan set still will interfere with the motherboard
RAM and MOSFET heatsinks. get that measurement and the fan hole spacing in the roof.
